Name change was created by Apple2018
Hi
Today I received my petition. However I changed my name by deed poll last year to my maiden name and the petition is in my married name.
What should I do I am a respondent and not paying any costs will the divorce override the change of name deed poll?

Any help gratefully received

Is your ex aware that you have changed your name?

You can ask them to correct it or let the court know that it is incorrect.

Getting divorced doesn't change your name so it won't override your deed poll.

I havent directly told him so I assume not as we don't talk

So if I when completing the acknowledgement I also put a letter stating my name change and copy of the deed?

Thanks
